Unless car maintenance is a hobby or interest of yours, it’s not a pragmatic skill to have. It used to be a necessity back in the old days, a huge economic benefit a couple decades ago, but now nearly obsolete today. It simply requires an absurd amount of time and dedication to learn enough about cars to not screw something up. On top of that, you’ll need the tools and skills to pull of the job, and lots of experience if you intend on doing it with any sort of efficiency.
Is the amount of time I’m going to spend doing it myself worth the money I’ll save?
Even if you have the knowledge to perform a variety of car repairs and maintenance tasks, that doesn’t necessarily mean that doing it yourself will always mean you save money, and certainly not time. Sometimes, taking your car to a professional mechanic to have the job turned around in a matter of hours can be worth every cent, especially if taking the DIY route is going to cause you a major inconvenience or require you to take too much time off work to accomplish.
ECU fixes and tuning
A good rule of thumb is to always leave automotive computer repairs alone. Unless you are a certified ASE master technician, there’s no reason for you to be fooling with air/fuel ratios, shift points, and redline limiters. Let an experienced tuner take over and fix whatever issues or fine tuning needs might be required.
Fuel system fixes
Here’s a great way to blow up your car and get third-degree burns in the process. Fuel systems have the capacity to cause headaches, garage fires, and even unconsciousness. Our recommendation is to play it safe and leave anything having to do with replacing a fuel pump, tank, injectors, rails, or pressurised lines to the pros.
Transmission repairs & replacements
Have you ever looked inside the bell housing of a car’s transmission? It’s a twisted maze of gears, tensioners, bearings, and rods, all of which have to fit right back where they belong in order to work. Think swapping a transmission is the way to go instead of rebuilding one? Good luck getting all those sensors out of the way without breaking a few crusty clips and smashing a finger or two. Even automatic gearboxes on a small four-cylinder weigh a lot, so we’re almost always certain that DIY is never a great option for time, money or practicality.
Need a quality mechanic in Hervey Bay? Give us a call
Weigh your options carefully – you might just determine that using a professional quality mechanic is the only way to go. Call our office on 07 4124 9308 to discuss your vehicle repair and maintenance options.
When your car sends warning signs that something’s not right, it’s vital that these signs are not ignored. An early fix is the smart & cheaper approach, as is regular maintenance to help prevent these problems from developing in the first place.
Here are some of the more common signs your vehicle may need attention, and failure to address it may lead to much bigger issues.
1. Is it harder to start your car?
If your car has trouble starting, it can point to a number of issues (a weak battery or fuel pump, for example), but it can also be an ignition problem that a simple tune-up would fix. The best way to know for sure is to have it diagnosed by a trusted local mechanic. Whatever the case, don’t ignore this symptom.
2. Noisy / squeaky brakes
Good brakes are vital, but being out of sight, they can also be out of mind. Always keep your ears open for unusual sounds when braking.
A grinding noise on braking is usually caused by a lack of brake pad material; the pads and rotors are now metal to metal, with no braking material left. Brake pads are like bars of soap. Eventually they get used up, and you have to replace them and spend a little money.
3. Knocking sounds or rough idling/acceleration
If your car knocks while accelerating or when climbing hills, it’s typically a sign of some engine inefficiency. Also, if the car seems to idle roughly or accelerate roughly, it may be that one or more spark plugs are failing to ignite. A tune-up may solve this problem, or it can sometimes point to some other needed repair. If you are worried or concerned you are more than welcome to give us a call on 07 4124 9308 or drop into us at 71 Kent street, Urangan and we’ll take a look and advise you of your options.
Too often, even here in the Bay people are involved in accidents due to faulty brake system, poor tyre treads, and worn out drive belts, to name a few. This results it injury, trauma, stress and casualties. Basic car maintenance, while it doesn’t prevent accidents directly, can help improve your safety and that of others whenever you take to the road.
Improved Resale Value
A well-maintained car is often a simple way to demand higher value in the used car market than a vehicle that has been obviously neglected.
Furthermore potential car buyers are now more meticulous about their choices to make sure they aren’t buying your problem vehicle. With the growth of online markets like Carsales.com.au and Gumtree it is easy to compare and have access to a lot of cars the same as your own. You need to stand out! Being able to provide maintenance and regular servicing will give the buyer peace of mind that you were a responsible owner.

We then pull over and make quick fixes, that’s if, it can be fixed immediately at all. In many cases most people are left with no choice but to call for roadside assistance, someone to jump start our car, or even a towing service.
